Happymaster19 on God, I Hate Bugs! [The Locust God EDH]

2 days ago

I don't know that we need a ton of redundancy of 'no max hand size' since wheels don't put us over that. I have a Reliquary Tower in case Rhystic Study, Mind's Eye, or Consecrated Sphinx get out of hand. I actually had Jin in but I'm kicking around the idea of jamming Omniscience and Laboratory Maniac and that would likely kick Jin out.

Hey sweet oloro deck now by potent do you mean more controlling? ie:Winter Orb + Tangle Wire Or more of the Omniscience + Laboratory Maniac Win more combo? But for your land base I think you're fine unless you wanna upgrade to your shock lands(Hallowed Fountain,Godless Shrine and Watery Grave) or the Guild Gates cycle(Azorius Guildgate,Orzhov Guildgate and Dimir Guildgate). Though for a good addition I would suggest Glacial Chasm for some "you cant touch me" fun.

Fiftyshotzlater I was actually thinking about adding Kozilek, Butcher of Truth but I wasn't sure if I need it with Time Reversal and Commit / Memory in combination with Mystic Retrieval and Recoup. But I will definitely think about it.

As for Laboratory Maniac: I couldn't test enough how realistic it is to draw that much, especially since I chose to not include the Skullclamp-Ashnod's Altar-Combo. But he is a hot candidate.

I'm not sure but the "end the turn and remove all abilities on the stack"-part of Day's Undoing also removes the Locust Gods trigger to create Locusts as far as I know.

And at last: I'm not a fan of Omniscience, Enter the Infinite and my playgroup is a bit weary about counterspells so Baral, Chief of Compliance doesn't fit that much.

Thanks for the suggestions. :)

Laboratory Maniac? Omniscience Enter the Infinite combo?could even throw in Baral, Chief of Compliance and some more counterspells for more of a control build. Day's Undoing or Kozilek, Butcher of Truth or Kozilek, the Great Distortion might be good too.

DillsDells on The Locust God Combo

1 week ago

I'm also working on locust god and just a few observations from my playtesting.

The Locust God + Skullclamp + Thornbite Staff + Brass Squire is a strictly worse version of Ashnod's Altar + Skullclamp + The Locust God that is more complicated to set up when Clamp altar will draw your deck and net you infinite colorless mana, at this point Braingeyser, laborotory maniac, Throne of the God-Pharaoh, Rolling Earthquake or Goblin Bombardment all become win on the spot cards(situational excluding multiplayer which would be restricted to throne, lab, quake or Purphoros.)Outside of this single combo interaction both Thornbite Staff and Brass Squire are pretty bad in the list and are not doing much on their own, pair that with well placed removal on even Skullclamp and these draws become DEAD.

However Ashnod's altar is inherently good in this deck due to the amount of mana you can pump out of it , potentially playing locust god into brainstorm and curve right into kozilek.

Also I noticed almost no countermagic in your list. If you are going to play a combo based strategy cards like Force of Will, Mana Drain, and Pact of Negation are amazing options for tap out protection against other blue decks. Dream Fracture is another solid option.

Personally I feel Psychosis Crawler to be a bit of a dud in this list, it is very expensive and unless your already going off and screams "Deal with me before I kill you all" If your on a 2 turn set up Purphoros is a much safer play with fewer outs to dealing with him and a faster clock, 20 tokens gets a table win, 14 in 1v1. Skullclamp makes this happen with 7-10 mana. Energy Tap can pull 6 colorless off Locust god for a single blue. Where I'm going with this is cards that function well by themselves that ALSO enable those explosive plays will help to add consistency to your list.

I may sugest cutting the Thornbite+Squire and testing Basalt Monolith+Rings of Brighthearth. A well known infinite mana combo but also works really well in this deck with cards like fetch lands, Arcanis the Omnipotent becomes Ancestral Recall x2 for 2, Merfolk Looter/JVP and Isochron Scepter to name a few. Basalt+any sol land/card by itself fuels a T2 Locust God and helps cast cards like Enter the Infinite or Omniscience quickly

Cards like Mana Vault, Basalt Monolith, and Grim Monolith all get really insane with Goblin Welder.... who triggers Rings of Brighthearth to allow for double welding. If you add in some draw spells with discard like Careful Study Faithless Looting and Frantic Search your seeing more cards, netting more insects than most cantrips i.e. Ponder, Serum Visions, or Preordain, you can pitch things like Darksteel Citadel or ingot respond to removal and weld out your combo pieces or refresh your monolith/Vault

One Final note, I didn't Se Chasm Skulker you may look into him. he acts as kind of a Locust God piggy bank storing a second wave of tokens that can refresh a board after wrath effects or double the amount of mana you can generate via Altars, and at the very least its a creature that just gets absurdly large if unanswered.

Overall though glad to see others brewin' locust, he is a blast to play and I wish you the best of luck with your deck! Feel free to pm me if you'd like to talk more about the list I'm always looking for people to bounce ideas and suggestions off of.

thewaz248 on The Bug Chucker: Flaming Locusts Edition!

Mxyzptlk: That is quite ridiculous. Omniscience is actually my laptop's wallpaper. However, I think I don't think I'd be able to make it to the mana requirements necessary for it.

Thank you for the comment though!

Mxyzptlk on The Bug Chucker: Flaming Locusts Edition!

A really wacky and expensive combo I discovered: If you play Omniscience with The Locust God out, then Enter the Infinite, and you follow it up with Arjun, the Shifting Flame, you can draw through your whole deck over and over making upwards of 60 Locust tokens at a time until you're satisfied with how many you have. >:)
